The ADR 4 NextGen social media call is officially underway, a "social" competition aimed at the students of the ISS Paolo Baffi and Leonardo Da Vinci of the Municipality of Fiumicino, who are asked to develop digital ideas for innovative communication on sustainability.

Until 20 November 2021, students who desire to contribute to sustainable development with creativity and a fresh approach are invited to enter the competition, submitting their projects on how to communicate key sustainability issues - such as climate change, the environment, and community well-being to social media audiences. Videos, pills, infographics, podcasts, or other forms of digital narrative that the students consider innovative and effective may be submitted.

"The moment of severe crisis generated by the pandemic has stimulated Aeroporti di Roma to invest more and more in the sustainable and innovative development of our reality: in addition to the objectives we have set ourselves, such as reaching the NetZero target by 2030, and the goals we have achieved, including the recovery of 98% of waste, at the heart of our strategy are the territory and our community, with which we are committed to maintaining a fruitful and constant dialogue," said Veronica Pamio, Vice President External Relations and Sustainability of Aeroporti di Roma. "In this context, giving a voice to the new generations, to make them aware of sustainability issues and to enhance their ideas, is a fundamental objective: for this very reason, we are happy to be able to collaborate with the Fiumicino School Policies Department and local schools on ADR 4 NextGen, a project that we hope will be the first of a long series. ”

A dedicated committee of Aeroporti di Roma will evaluate the works and select the three most innovative, richest, most applicable and most efficient projects from a communication viewpoint: these works will then be presented by the students during the round table "ADR 4 NextGen" on 13 December.

"I would like to thank Aeroporti di Roma for involving our high schools in the project dedicated to sustainability ADR 4 NextGen: talking about sustainability with the new generations is a fundamental example for the integrated and multidisciplinary education of our students," commented Paolo Calicchio, Councillor for School, Sport and Youth Policies of the Municipality of Fiumicino. “The themes addressed in the competition are very important, aimed at empowering young people, making them part of a shared project dedicated to supporting environmental and community awareness initiatives. The innovative language with which the students can participate in the competition is a further motivation: I am sure that our young people can interpret the subject of the competition in the best way and we are now waiting for the works, which result from the creativity and imagination of our students, to take shape. Finally, I applaud the I.I.S. Leonardo Da Vinci and I.I.S. Paolo Baffi, the headmasters and all the teachers for the enthusiasm with which they joined the initiative. ”
